I had posted about my son & his teething his molars. My mom was babysitting for me and so while we were out my mom said ds broke out in a fever. She said not to worry but that she was takimg him to the doctors they informed her he had fluid in his ear and that was why he was getting fevers, anyone know how to help relieve this? They just said to stop giving him tempera and to switch to advil (which i was always nervous to use). Anyway any other tips?

I don't know if my DD notices them, she is only 2... but she went from being unable to hear and having constant ear infections to being able to hear, finally talking, and no more ear infections, or fluid build up.. been a wonderful thing

Yea, if the fluid doesn't drain on it's own, as it should within the next day or so... speak to your ped about tubes, and if they may be beneifical to your son :)
